Sunken Meadow View

Now that Inktober is finally over I can get caught up with other art I created during that time. Before we started our trip I met up with 3 friends up at Sunken Meadow State Park on the north shore. We had to paint quickly because the tide there changes rather quickly. By the time we were done the small islands were all covered up and all you could see was the tips of the grasses.

Am I glad that Inktober is over...yes and no. I put a lot of pressure on myself to make sure a new sketch is done daily, even though I know I don't have to do one every day. I usually sketch anyway, but this makes me more structured so that is something I will miss. It was fun to use different kinds of inks for the sketches. Too bad I didn't bring them along on the trip to continue experimenting, but I'm lucky I got the sketches done. lol I know me and I will join the group again next year. 


  1. Congrats on finishing Inktober! I missed your color almost as much as you did! Good to see it back!


  2. I really like this piece Joan and I liked the story too - lol. I enjoyed your ink sketches and can see it as something to do when one needs motivating.

  3. Very nice sketch Joan!!! I love how you sketched the rocks! Beautiful work!

  4. Val, thanks so much. It was motivating.

    Hilda, thanks! It is such a great spot.
